Nancy,

I think you can use Filemaker Pro as a database on the Mac, works pretty
well, once you know how to use it. Export from Cellquest is possible, you
only have to device a way to load it into FileMaker Pro. I know that some
other people have done this, although I personally never tried, and I don't
know whether their programs are publicly available.

Applescript will let you automate the import into Filemaker Pro, although
Cellquest itself is not (yet) scriptable. Wait for the Cellquest 3.1 for
more automatic export features (should be out very soon).

Hope that get's you on the track...

Cheers, Matthias
